The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has issued a red flag warning for San Gabriel and San Fernando valleys through Saturday night. Winds are predicted to be sustained at 15 to 30 miles per hour, with wind gusts up to 45 miles per hour. Not as strong as last weekend’s but still strong enough, said Todd Morris of NOAA. “We have augmented staffing,” said Stephanie English, spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County Fire Department. That means that Battalion Four in the La Cañada-La Crescenta area has a strike team standing by with five engines ready to respond.

After a picture-perfect landing early Sunday morning, the Stardust spacecraft continues to excite scientists with the comet samples it has brought back. The canister was opened Tuesday evening, said Bill Jeffs of the Johnson Space Center. "Scientists did confirm that the aerogel captured particles that exceeded their expectations." Aerogel is a lighter than air material that was used to collect the comet samples. The space center scientists would have been satisfied with finding a few particles that were big enough to be seen with the naked eye, Jeffs said.

As mud dumping sites reach capacity, county officials have been scrambling to find places to store large amounts of dirt, especially with more rain on the horizon. The county Board of Supervisors on Tuesday directed officials to seek temporary fee waivers from state and city agencies to dump the dirt at landfills in an effort to minimize costs.
